I always seek out the good local joints when traveling, which is frequently, and Kentucky Greg's is a great example of why. Casual ambiance, attentive and friendly staff, but the food was what really made this visit a success. Will definitely try them again when I'm back in the area.

Very small place that's been around for a long time. The food was good but very greasy, as is to be expected.

They literally have the best BBQ pulled chicken I've ever had. They also have amazing fried banana peppers & pickles. I would eat here everyday if possible.

Yup. By far the tastiest BBQ I've had in a while. It's actually better than anything I've had in the San Francisco Bay Area (land of very snobby uber-foodies). Had the combo platter -- pulled pork and beef with sides of mac salad and beans. Texas toast too! Good amount of food for your money. I actually had enough to... More

Our hotel told us of Kentucky Greg's Hickory Pit and our being out near the Buffalo Airport it was close. In an unassuming little eatery (aren't most good BBQ places thus), we found probably the best ribs I've ever eaten. I queried whether they were falling off the bone, and was told if I wasn't satisfied they would reorder. They... More

We dine there often for lunch and dinner with and without the kids. Food is excellent. I love the Brunswick Stew. The pulled pork is the best in Buffalo. My wife loves the fried okra. And don't forget a pig cookie🙂 Tell Jill we said "hi" when you visit.

Everytime I am in town, I make a point to eat here. I love the BBQ chicken with okra and potato salad. The Texas toast is no big deal but everything else more than makes up for the toast. Great taste at a great price.

The barbecue was really nice. The meat was properly cooked and the sauce had less sweetness and more of an acidic tang than many places like this. Service was decent. I'd skip the deserts. The bread pudding was very marginal at best. If you're still hungry, have seconds of barbecue.

Dropped in mid-week about 5:30pm. They were quite busy, but we were able to get one of the last tables. Our waitress quickly took our drink order and gave us time to peruse the menu. The beer selection was just okay for me, with very few craft beer selections. The food menu was great with a nice selection of smoked... More
